Do you love the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Walt Disney World? Do you love the film series and are dying to get to Walt Disney World to experience one of the greatest Disney dark rides ever conceived for the first time? Are you a Disney World regular who makes sure that Pirates is always on your "must do" list? Well, if you have plans to travel to Walt Disney World this summer, you will unfortunately be unable to experience this classic Disney attraction, as it is closed for refurbishment through the summer and most likely September. Several internet sources indicate that the attraction will reopen September 25th. However the official Disney World website indicates that Pirates "is currently closed for enhancements. Please check back here for the latest updates and information about when it will reopen."
That is a bit of good news/bad news, in my opinion. The use of the word "enhancements" hints to more than a clean-up and paint job refurbishment, particularly since the attraction will be closed for an estimated four months. With a fifth Pirates movie on the horizon, these enhancements may even include some tie-ins to the upcoming film. Although, Disney may be hesitant to do this until the film proves that the franchise still has life enough to ensure a box office success.
The bad news about Disney not providing a definitive re-open date is that it could mean that this refurb will last beyond September. However, it could also mean that they are leaving the door open for an earlier date if the work progresses quickly and they find themselves ahead of schedule. In either case, if you have a trip on the horizon on these finals summer weeks, be warned that not only do "dead men tell no tales," they will certainly not be telling them in Orlando in the near future.
